“The most common and the monstrous defect in the education of the day is that children fail to acquire the habit of reading.”
― Charlotte M. Mason
Happy Friday friends!
Just wanted to pop on tell you what’s coming up next week on the blog – I’m proudly naming it ‘Living Books Week’; there will be a blog post explaining what a living book is and how to ask them the right questions, a guest blog post from Emily Kiser of A Delectable Education, plus a fab give-away of the Charlotte Mason’s first volume of poetry ‘The Saviour of the world’.
The ‘Charlotte Mason Show‘ has been broadcasting for a couple of weeks now and it has been fun getting to know some of you wonderful Mason mama’s from around the globe. If you’re not following me on Periscope go across and find me – the show goes live every Tuesday and Thursday at 1.30pm GMT (UK) and the whole focus is to encourage others and share my story of how I’ve implemented the Charlotte Mason methods and philosophy in my home educating over the past 8 years.
Don’t expect perfection, purism or expertise; I’m a champion of the method and an enthusiastic practitioner but I don’t claim to know it all – so come over, relax and let’s do this journey together mama’s!
If you ever miss the broadcasts or are just not into Periscope you can keep up to date with all my videos here on Katch.
Don’t forget to subscribe to my monthly newsletter on the right hand sidebar (or scroll to the bottom if you’re on your phone) if you want to keep up to date with what’s coming up and ‘off the record’ news (smile). No spam, I promise, just a little encouraging note from me in your inbox once a month. First one goes out on February 1st so sign up today!
Have a blessed weekend…
